Two dandies meet each other in the street. Their outfits are a melange of stripes, plaids and solid colors, with big bow ties at neck and on their shoes. One says, "You know my old Cresus the tailor? I married his daughter. I was broke, now I'm repaired!" His friend replies, "I see that you have really learned how to take your measures!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
